Boom! Here it is – Elena Hight has become the first woman ever to stomp a double in the halfpipe. Before she disappeared off the radar following her Olympic gold, there were rumours (and some video evidence) that Torah Bright was going for a double crippler, but Elena’s beaten her to it – and as far as we know, no one else has really come close. This double backside rodeo is big, stylish and properly legit, and if she irons out that little arm-wave on the landing, this will surely put her in contention for any pipe contest she enters. The bar has officially been raised.
